Each two months, FNPW creates and emails out B-mail - a completely free e-newsletter that raises awareness about native plants and animals you are likely to see in your backyard.

B-mail promotes awareness of and involvement in biodiversity conservation at a local level. It encourages readers to enjoy native species in the urban environment, and make their backyards and local areas safe and inviting for urban wildlife.

B-mail is a positive, easy to understand community education tool. It speaks to individual readers and provides them with simple ways to be a part of a larger environmental solution.
